H1N1 FLU BREAKING NEWS: Health system strained; infected Argentine pig; first Iraqi, Serb, pilgrimage cases; native Canadians declare emergency

first_imgJun 25, 2009Rochester, N.Y., health system strained by flu patientsThe health system in the Rochester, N.Y., area is under heavy strain from a “very high volume” of novel flu patients, according to Dr. Andrew Doniger, public health director for Monroe County, which includes Rochester. In a Jun 24 report posted by the news site MPNnow, Doniger said people with possible flu should not try to see a doctor unless they have severe symptoms, such as persistent fever or breathing difficulty. He said the area had relatively few flu cases until the second week of June.[Jun 24 MPNnow report]Argentine pig tests positive for novel H1N1A pig in Argentina has tested positive for novel H1N1 influenza, the director of the country’s animal health and sanitation service, Jorge Amaya, said today, according to a Dow Jones News report. Because no animals have been moved into the area recently, animal health officials are exploring whether the animal contracted the virus from a human. Other hogs are being tested in areas in proximity to the pig, which has since recovered.[Jun 25 Dow Jones Newswire story]Basketball team brings H1N1 flu home to IraqIraq has recorded its first cases of the novel H1N1 influenza, in five women’s basketball players and their male coach, according to Agence France-Presse (AFP).

On the trip back from Chicago, the team passed through Amman, Jordan, where another player was held after she tested positive for the virus, the story said.[Jun 25 AFP report]Serbia plans restriction on athletes, reports first caseSerbian leaders announced yesterday that athletes attending the World University Games in Belgrade next month will be required to show a certificate saying they don’t have the new flu, the Associated Press (AP) reported yesterday.

Experts push hard for early seasonal flu vaccination

first_imgSep 10, 2009 (CIDRAP News) – Today was the 12th year the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases (NFID) has held a press conference to discuss its expectations for the upcoming flu season, but discussions were far from routine, reflecting uncertainty surrounding the pandemic flu strain and the complexity of launching two vaccine campaigns.Kathleen Sebelius, secretary of the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), told reporters that it’s hard to make predictions about how the flu season will play out, but she said urging the public to get their seasonal flu vaccines—available now—is a good place to start. “It’s important to not lose sight of the fact that seasonal flu takes its toll year in and year out,” she said.The HHS expects 116 million doses of the seasonal flu vaccine to be distributed to clinics and immunization sites, she said. Yesterday, vaccine experts, in a National Influenza Vaccine Summit conference call, slightly lowered their vaccine production estimate from the 118 million doses projected earlier. They also noted some vaccine providers are having trouble getting the doses they ordered because of prebooking problems.Tom Frieden, MD, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), said 40 million doses have already been delivered to physicians’ offices. He said it’s too soon to predict how well the seasonal vaccine will match the circulating seasonal flu strains. In March, researchers from British Columbia identified a drifted strain of the seasonal H3N2 flu virus, the Canadian Press (CP) reported. In July, laboratory officials in the southern hemisphere reported finding a drifted seasonal H3N2 virus strain, according to another CP report. The findings raise the threat of a vaccine mismatch for the northern hemisphere’s upcoming flu season.”We’ll be tracking to see what happens,” Frieden said.Regarding the vaccine supply issue, he said that although there may be spot shortages, companies have ample supplies of seasonal flu vaccine.Influenza experts speaking at today’s NFID press conference had tough words for healthcare workers who opt not to receive their annual flu immunization. Gregory Poland, MD, a virologist at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., who represented the American College of Physicians today, said, “It is an embarrassing fact that 60% don’t get vaccinated. I’m sorry, but it is not about you. It’s about the patients you’re privileged to care for.” The medical literature suggests that healthcare worker flu vaccination can reduce death rates in intensive care units by as much as 60%, he said.Poland praised California and New York for making flu vaccines for healthcare workers mandatory, and he urged other states and medical facilities to do the same. “This should be a priority for all institutions that take patient safety seriously,” he added.The experts urged the public not to be complacent about seasonal flu, despite the singular focus on the pandemic H1N1 virus. David Tayloe, MD, a pediatrician in Goldsboro, NC, who is president of the American Academy of Pediatrics, says parents sometimes see flu as just a nuisance. “But it can rapidly act savagely and fatally,” he said.Nancy H. Nielsen, MD, PhD, an internist in Buffalo, NY, and immediate past president of the American Medical Association, spoke to the importance of getting the vaccine out early and the key role physicians will play in the administration of both vaccines. “Public health is every physician’s second specialty. All physicians are going to be involved in helping their patients,” she said.She added that getting the seasonal vaccine into patients’ arms as early as possible will help free up physicians to assist in the rollout of the pandemic H1N1 vaccine when it becomes available in mid October.Tayloe added that juggling two vaccine campaigns “isn’t going to be pretty, but if we get the kids in now, then we can tackle the H1N1 vaccine later.”Cora L. Christian, MD, MPH, a family physician in the US Virgin Islands and a member of the Association for the Advancement of Retired Persons (AARP) board of directors, says she tells patients who see her while she has a seasonal flu vaccine supply, “I’ll give you what I have now.””The will of the physician to make sure it [flu vaccination] happens, to me, is the underlying message,” she said.See also:Sep 9 CIDRAP News story “Providers having trouble getting seasonal flu vaccine”NFID influenza portalhttp://www.nfid.org/influenza/last_img read more

Chef Lionel Levy: Defend ancestral recipes

first_imgThe Croatian National Tourist Board, in cooperation with the Croatian Chamber of Trades and Crafts, organized “Croatian 365 Gourmet” workshops in Osijek and Zagreb.Thus, the workshop in Osijek was held on Thursday at the Museum of Taste, while the workshop in Zagreb took place yesterday at the Westin Hotel. The speakers at the workshops are top chefs Michelin Lionel Levy and Filippo Saporito, and the workshops themselves provide top educational content and information on world trends in the gastronomy and oenology segment, including marketing.”It is an exceptional honor for the Museum of Taste, as the best restaurant in Slavonia and the Danube region, to have hosted such an event, which was held in Slavonia for the first time. It’s a great feeling to cook together with top world names in the kitchen of the Museum of Taste “, pointed out Mirta Glavašić, marketing manager of the Museum of Taste.At the workshops, participants had the opportunity to listen to lectures on world culinary trends, local cuisine, modern confectionery, pairing food and wine, and restaurant management. Chef Lionel Levy from Marseille, talked about the preservation and identity of traditional cuisine and how to refresh the menu with modern techniques. His message was “Defend the recipes of your ancestors!”A strong message from chef Lionel Lavy that can certainly be interpreted as the philosophy of the whole tourism because that is exactly the very meaning of tourism. People travel to get to know new ways and culture of living, and authenticity is the very essence of tourism. “You must never forget who you are, what you are and where you come from and your skills with local products. I would not want Croatian chefs to make the same mistake as Italian or Spanish, who try to satisfy tourists and forget the tradition. It is important to protect and defend the recipes of your ancestors, otherwise they will get lost. I understand that you want to survive as a tourist, but you have to speak realistically to tourists”Said Lionel Levy, adding that French cuisine, although it has a huge tradition, was once strongly influenced by foreign cuisines, especially Spanish, but they managed to break away from those influences and return to their roots. Interestingly, the night before, Lionel Levy, was at a dinner where he tasted fish perkelt. This prompted him to modify this traditional Pannonian specialty a bit, and he mixed the pasta with fried bacon together with the cream in a blender, thus giving the fish perkel a new dimension.Chef Lionel Levy / Photo: Museum of TasteChef Filipo Saporito, whose last name is “delicious” in Italian. It comes from the gastronomic region of Tuscany and has Sicilian roots. It is crowned with one Michelin star. He stressed that we need to be open-minded and we need to look for inspiration in local foods and show our character through food. He emphasized that Tuscany as a tourist region has both culture and history, but that good food is still the main motive for tourist arrivals.Chef confectioner Yoan Dessarzin is an advocate of patience and passion for work. He believes that it takes time to gather knowledge and experience for a quality continuation of work and the creation of new desserts. Gabriel Vasquez, a gastro-marketing consultant, also joined us, emphasizing that we need to convey the real moment of our everyday life in the restaurant. He pointed to the marketing power of social media and how we can portray emotion through a story that portrays our vision and the values ​​represented.The sommelier Mira Šemić and Sandi Paris, a four-time winner of the national championships of the best sommelier, who represented Croatia at numerous European and world sommelier competitions, also participated in the workshop program. By the way, the Croatian National Tourist Board organized the same workshops in Split and Opatija in June, and now it has completed a whole cycle of excellent workshops in Osijek and Zagreb.Authors: Mario Jukić / HrTurizam.hrlast_img read more

Well done to Aminess! They introduced the products of local family farms into their gastronomic offer

first_imgIt is interesting how the whole project is imagined in Aminess. Namely, local menus of family farms will be present on the menus, and members of the Aminess gourmet team will additionally present the offer of food and drinks to the guests. Croatia in a bottle presents an offer of drinks, from indigenous wine varieties and brandies and spirits to wild and tame ingredients from untouched nature. After the drink, it’s his turn Croatia on a plate, offering flavors of regions where the Mediterranean intertwines with the continent. Olive oils, delicious fish and shellfish, prosciutto and cheese, truffles and national specialties made from local ingredients are just some of the gastronomic trump cards from the menu. The Aminess Maravea Camping Resort also has a bakery that unites the segment Croatia on the shelf. Among products such as golden cereals, honeys of irresistible floral notes, marmalades made from healthy locally harvested fruit and dairy products from cows and sheep grazing on the nearby glades, everything is finally well rounded off with an offer of homemade food from local family farms. Yes, this is how tourism is strategically and sustainably developed, and not to encourage imports through tourism. Tastes of Croatia project  The idea came from the project Aminess Gourmet Lab, led by chef David Skoka, who aims to educate young chefs, waiters, bartenders and other members of the Aminess gourmet team. With this concept of promoting Croatian indigenous products, Aminess wants to offer its guests the best gastronomic experience.  Guests of Aminess hotels and camps will thus have the opportunity to get acquainted with Croatian gastronomy through three segments of the restaurant offer – Croatia on the bottle, Croatia on the plate and Croatia on the shelf. Travel company Aminess has launched a project called “Tastes of Croatia” with the aim of offering guests of all a la carte and boarding houses restaurants in their hotels and camps a special gastronomic experience with exclusively domestic products of selected regional producers and family farms. Photo: Pexels.com This must be our vision of the bend, ie it should have been set a long time ago. This is exactly how Blue and Green Croatia are connected. Just imagine how much is the daily need of, say, Pula or Split for home-made eggs? And monthly? Here we are talking about the number of over 100 thousand eggs… How many family farms should be included only for the production of eggs for tourism in each city. Not one large company, but thousands of small family farms, which would employ 3-5 employees, stay in rural areas, develop as a supplement to rural tourism (the example of Tuscany). This offer will soon be introduced in other Aminess hotels, and in the summer months the offer will be extended to fresh fruits and vegetables. Aminess has launched the Tastes of Croatia project. Well done to Aminess. A great rounded story, which I hope will only grow in the context of involving more and more local family farms. At the moment, through the morning and evening menu on the buffet tables in the Aminess Maestral hotel, the Tastes of Croatia project includes producers Agro Cluster with products from Vukovar-Srijem County, Histris with homemade Istrian meat delicacies without gluten, soy and lactose, Fishermen’s Cooperative Istria with specialties made from freshly caught fish from the Adriatic Sea, and OPG Orbanić with a family tradition of preparing cheeses and dairy delicacies made from milk from Istrian pastures. Exactly what is the very essence of tourism, because guests want to try something new and different, they want to try authentic gastronomy. And it is through incredible diversity and authenticity that Croatia can and must position itself in this segment. Also, it creates a healthy and sustainable system, stimulates the local economy, and we are based on quality through fresh, home-grown food. last_img read more
